Andrew Yin SVOBODA
By Joseph SINASAC, Thursday, January 13, 2005 - Page A20
Classical music composer, son, friend. Born February 4, 1977. Died December 29, 2004, in Burlington, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged 27.
In his 1996 Assumption High School yearbook, Andrew Yin SVOBODA left this inscription. "To all: One day when space and time collide, I'll meet you on the other side." A little deeper than usual for a high school graduate, perhaps, but not for Andrew. To those who knew him, the words were typical of this older man in a young man's body. Throughout his short life, he was always a little more mature, thoughtful and wiser than his years would suggest.
Andrew's sudden death cut short the life of one of Canada's most promising young classical composers. He was attending Columbia University's esteemed music program on a full scholarship. His works -- musicals, choral music, symphonies -- had been performed in Montreal, New York and Paris.
Music had become Andrew's calling, but there was nothing preordained about that. As a high-school student he was a top scholar and was often advised that he should pursue studies in mathematics and science. But from the age of 7 he had been studying piano, sometimes reluctantly, at the insistence of his father, Josef. Though obviously talented, he had not considered a future in music until he was asked in 1995 to write a musical for his high school. The result was Earth Angels, a musical on the 1917 Halifax explosion, for which he earned a special scholarship. It awakened new possibilities for his future.
After high school, Andrew went to McGill University in Montreal, where he obtained bachelor's and master's degrees in music, finishing in 2003. McGill was followed by a year of studies at l'Ecole Normale Superieur de Musique in Paris and then Columbia last fall.
Andrew came from an atypical Canadian family, though not a particularly musical one. His Czech father had emigrated to Canada after spending years in a Communist prison camp; in Canada he became an environmentalist and professor at the University of Toronto. Andrew's mother, Lewina, was of Chinese background from Hong Kong. Both took their Catholic faith seriously and kept their two sons deeply involved in their local parish. In the summers during their teens, Andrew and his older brother, Michael, would sometimes accompany their father on his field expeditions in the high Arctic. Josef talks about how he always hoped to instill two things into his son: a love of music and the ability to speak French. Years of piano lessons and French immersion paid off in the fluently bilingual musician.
Though single-minded about his music, Andrew wasn't one-dimensional. Following his funeral, old Friends talked about his other sides his deep faith, unquenchable humour, love of cooking, fondness for popular musicals, prowess at sports (especially volleyball) and, most notably, his ability to be a friend.
Matt HUCULAK, who studied English literature at McGill when Andrew was there, recalled the many times he and Andrew were joined by a group of Friends for serious discussions on literature and music. But sometimes things were not so sublime, such as the time Andrew taught Matt, a California native unfamiliar with Montreal winters, that fresh snow makes a most satisfying material for snowballs and dumping down someone's pants. "He was a very profound, spiritual person, a true artist," Matt said. "But there was still that childlike wonder he had."
On the night before his death, one of his best high-school Friends, Lisa MOODY, went with Andrew to see the new movie version of Phantom of the Opera, which he enjoyed. After recounting how he could liven up a room with both music and fun, she said, "I really believe in my heart he will be forever our angel of music."
Joseph is a friend of the SVOBODA family.

A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!

George SALVERSON, Playwright: 1916-2005
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's first drama editor wrote a thousand radio plays, switched effortlessly to television and wrote a hit musical
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, May 7, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- He was Canada's king of radio drama in its golden age. George SALVERSON wrote about a thousand radio plays in a career that began in 1945 and lasted until long after the arrival of television. He was a volume man who never kept count and, in fact, held few copies of his work. Week after week, Mr. SALVERSON generated a one-hour Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio play with a careful story line and perfect dialogue. The phrase "writer's block" didn't exist for him; he was a freelancer and he had to eat.
He did have a routine, though. For many years he worked for Stages, the main Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio drama of the week. His work week started on a Tuesday or a Wednesday with an idea. It could be something in the news, such as prison reform or mental health. Radio dramas were used to deal with social issues the same way television documentaries or long news items are today.
After the idea was nailed down, Mr. SALVERSON would write one act a day, with almost all his plays having three acts. That left him ready for the rehearsal, which took all day Saturday. During and after the rehearsal, he and the director, either Esse LJUNGH or Andrew ALLAN, would work polishing the script.
"The live performance was on Sunday," remembers Alfie SCOPP who was one of the actors. "We could come dressed casually for the rehearsal, but when we went live at 5 o'clock on Sunday we had to be dressed in a suit and a tie."
Studio G on Jarvis Street in Toronto would be filled with as many as 20 actors, including such well-known names as John DRAINIE, Aileen SEATON and Bud KNAPP. No matter how long their part, actors were all paid $45 a performance.
One example of the radio play as social commentary was a series called Return Journey, which Mr. SALVERSON wrote in 1951. It was based on research done at Kingston Penitentiary on how hard it was for a released prisoner to make it on the outside. The story tells how a prisoner was afraid of the outside world but also afraid of failure and a return to behind bars.
He did much of the research for that particular play while on his honeymoon in Kingston, Ontario His wife Olive SCOTT, went by the stage name of Sandra SCOTT, and acted in many of his productions. "George was always amazed that this glamorous actress married him," remembers his friend Mr. SCOPP.
The work on his honeymoon showed how an idea could be plucked from the headlines. In a recent e-mail to his daughter, Julie, he said the early Canadian Broadcasting Corporation almost invented documentary drama for radio. "Now it's routine in Law and Order."
Later when Mr. SALVERSON moved to television, he used the same techniques for coming up with story ideas. Once he met a man he knew who had been a successful advertising executive but could no longer find work because he was over 45. "The trouble is, I'm over-age and over qualified," the man told Mr. SALVERSON.
The same line came out of the mouth of Walter, the fictional version of the ad man in the television play, The Write-Off. Mr. SALVERSON spoke to people in the business world, talked to employment agencies and tried to find out just how many Walters there were in Canada. He figured there to be at least 500,000 under-employed older people.
"The real Walter attended one of the taping sessions and he walked into the control room as Rudi [director Rudi DORN] was directing the firing scene," recalled Mr. SALVERSON in a 1968 interview. "When I asked him was this anything like the way it really happened, he gave me a long look and remarked, 'Have you ever been through a nightmare twice?' "
George SALVERSON's early life read like an improbable script for a radio play. His father, the son of Scandinavian immigrants, worked for the Canadian National Railway and the family lived, at one time or another, in Port Arthur, Ontario, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Kamloops, British Columbia, Vancouver and Victoria. Fortunately, he spent enough time in Port Arthur to go to high school there. His mother, Laura Goodman SALVERSON, wrote and published 10 books. She won the Governor General's Award twice -- for her novel The Dark Weaver in 1937 and then for her autobiography Confessions of an Immigrant's Daughter in1939.
Even so, George SALVERSON never wanted to be a playwright. He set out to be a newscaster and was headed in the right direction when he got his first job at CFAR in Flin Flon, Manitoba He performed every role at the tiny radio station, including writing and reading the news. The highlight of his newscasting career occurred on December 7, 1941, when he told the 7,000 people of Flin Flon of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and he did it dressed in a suit.
His second job came along in what was then the biggest city in Western Canada -- Winnipeg. But at CKRC, they had other plans. He could read the occasional newscast if he liked, but it wasn't news readers they wanted. They had plenty, thanks. What they needed was a playwright, someone who could knock off a quickie radio drama and also take a part or two.
His first play was a success, and Mr. SALVERSON soon found himself doing the writing, acting, producing and sound effects. He resolved to perfect his dramas, drifting over to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to pick up pointers on how to write believable dialogue and interesting story ideas.
For a couple of years, Mr. SALVERSON wrote, produced and directed plays for Eaton's, when the department store used radio dramas to sell its wares. Then, in 1948, he was given work by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and moved to Toronto. Among his first shows was Paper Railroad, a play based on his father's work life.
From the time he arrived in Toronto he was never short of works or awards. He won a first in the Canadian Radio Awards of 1948 and, the following year, received another from Ohio State University. In 1949, he adapted Dracula for radio, a play that starred Lorne GREEN, Alan KING and Lister SINCLAIR.
When the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation turned to television in the fall of 1952, Mr. SALVERSON was soon writing both radio and television plays and he became the network's first drama editor. One of his plays, The Discoverers, was performed on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and on Kraft Theatre in the United States. The play was about Banting and Best's discovery of insulin.
Later on he wrote documentaries as well as dramas for television. Perhaps his most famous was Air of Death. "That changed the course of public affairs programming on television," said Jane CHALMERS, vice-president of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. "In October of 1967, this documentary report, written by George, and dealing with air pollution in Canada, aired on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television, pre-empting the top-rated The Ed Sullivan Show."
His script laid the subject bare and resulted in a lawsuit.
"Dad worked for six months helping the lawyers and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation with the lawsuit. They won their case," said Julie SALVERSON. "He used to joke it was the only time he had such steady work."
He wrote one production for the stage, the musical The Legend of the Dumbells, which was produced at the Charlottetown Festival in 1977. It was about a Canadian troupe of First World War entertainers and used songs from the era. It travelled to the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and the Elgin Theatre in Toronto and continues to be staged.
When Studio G closed in July 1993, before the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation moved to its new Toronto headquarters, he wrote a 10-minute sketch for radio. It was called End Credits.
For many years, Mr. SALVERSON taught writing at Ryerson University in Toronto and, in the process, found that some people were unteachable. He told his daughter Julie, in one of their many e-mails, the story of a 50-year-old novelist who wanted to turn one of his books into a screenplay. He just couldn't do it.
"When I dramatized, I always went into the scene myself. I was sitting there doing the acting. And away went the characters, whooping it up. My writer friend remained a writer. He stood outside the scene and tried to tell you what was going on. And nobody felt anything."
As he grew older, George SALVERSON kept his mind in shape with mental exercises. One of them was memorizing The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. He could recite any verse on command, and was working on memorizing it backwards. He also wrote a lot of limericks. On the Saturday before he died, he had a new one for Alfie SCOPP. It went like this:
A well-endowed woman from Brussels
Had a veritable plethora of muscles,
She said with some pride,
There are others I hide,
And bring them out only in tussles.
He also wrote a book called Around the World in 80 Limericks, with bits of doggerel for each of the world's major cities. He wrote until the end.
George SALVERSON was born in St. Catharines, Ont, on April 30, 1916. He died on April 9, 2005, after a fall at his apartment at the Performing Arts Lodge in Toronto. He was 88. A public memorial service will be held there at 6 p.m., Monday, May 9. He is survived by his daughter Julie and son Scott. His wife died in 2000.

DAVIS, Fred, 1996 -- Died This Day
Broadcaster born in Toronto in 1921
Monday, July 11, 2005, Page S8
The son of a butcher, he attended Queen Victoria Public School. His father wanted him to become a doctor or a butcher; his mother hoped for a pianist. Instead, he took up the trumpet. After several musical gigs, including a summer with Howard Cable's orchestra, he joined the army in 1942 and was posted to England with the Army Show Orchestra. After the war, he returned to Toronto where he spent a year at Lorne GREENE's now-legendary Academy of Radio Arts. His first broadcasting jobs were in radio but after six years as a staff announcer at Ottawa station CFRA, he gravitated to television. He signed on as host of On the Spot and later moved to the afternoon show Open House. He also fronted the debate shows Under Attack and Crossfire. In 1957, he was made moderator of a new show called Front Page Challenge. The game-interview show was expected to last 13 weeks and instead it enjoyed a run of 38 years, making him a national celebrity along with regular panelists Gordon SINCLAIR, Pierre BERTON, and Betty KENNEDY.

11-year-old killed by truck 'a treasure'
Died after biking accident with garbage truck
Local residents say Horner Ave. is dangerous for children
By Scott ROBERTS, Staff Reporter
"Energetic, athletic, funny -- a really good friend."
Lynn TOMASEK's eyes well up with tears as she reads a list of words used to describe Ben PASKUS, an 11-year-old Etobicoke boy crushed to death by a garbage truck Wednesday evening.
"The children are just devastated," said TOMASEK, principal of St. Ambrose Catholic School, where Ben was a student in Grade 6. "He was a treasure, one of a kind. He'd be the first one to ask me how my day was going."
Ben was riding his bicycle home along Horner Ave. from a friend's house around 6: 40 p.m., police said. As he reached the corner of Sheldon Ave., a garbage truck made a right turn and crushed the boy, who was to celebrate his 12th birthday on Monday.
He was rushed to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy was performed yesterday.
Local residents say Horner Ave. is notoriously dangerous for children.
"People are always speeding and running lights on Horner," said Debby SINCLAIR, a neighbour and family friend.
In the past 10 years, there have been five accidents at the same intersection, three of which caused personal injuries. This was the first fatality.
A traffic light was recently put up at Beta St. and Horner Ave., four streets away, after complaints from the community, neighbours said.
Louise LEMIEUX, Ben's mother, would not speak to reporters but released a statement.
"I would like to thank the Alderwood community and the St. Ambrose community for their love and support at this difficult time," it read in part.
Throughout the day, Friends and neighbours streamed by the family's home to offer condolences. Residents on Connorvale Ave., just west of Kipling Ave., described Ben as a funny and outgoing boy. He loved playing street hockey, baseball, soccer and skateboarding. He leaves two younger brothers, Luke and Jacob.
Next-door neighbour Eric, whose mother asked that his last name not be used, said Ben was like a brother to him.
"I grew up with him through thick and thin," said the 17-year-old student at Father John Redmond Catholic Secondary School. "I taught him everything, how to fix his bike, how to skateboard. It's unbelievable he'd die this way."
Eric, whose younger brothers Nicholas, 11, and Christopher, 14, were also close with Ben, said he'll watch over the late boy's siblings like they were his own.
"I'm going to have to be a big brother figure to Luke and Jacob, too," he said.
"I'll always be here for them and Louise. I'll live here all my life, as long as they need me."
Artur and Maria PEREIRA, neighbours of the family, remember Ben as a newborn.
"He was an angel," said Artur. "You couldn't ask for a better son."
Ben, whose mother and father, Ed, are separated, was an altar boy at St. Ambrose Catholic Church. Neighbours said he shared a love of singing with his mother.
At least four social workers and two counsellors will be available to students and parents, school officials said.
LEMIEUX asked the community to pray for the driver of the garbage truck, whom she described as "the other victim of the accident."
Police have not released the name of the driver, who was reportedly traumatized and taken to hospital Wednesday night. The truck, owned by Turtle Island Municipal Services, was on contract to the City of Toronto.
Funeral arrangements have been made. Visitation will take place tomorrow at Ridley Funeral Home, 3080 Lake Shore Blvd. W., from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The funeral mass will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday at St. Ambrose Church.
